Data Diligence

Following headlines covering the Facebook and Cambridge Analytica saga, awareness of not only privacy issues, but also the underlying value of data held by corporations and how they are processed has heightened. One area highlighted in this article is how data collected by pharmaceutical companies is underutilised to inform data-driven decisionmaking across the board.

Unlocking Marketing Data

Traditionally, supply chain design and management has focused solely on sourcing products as well as distribution. However, many pharma companies’ supply chains are based on outdated legacy models where high demand and margins were once the norm. With the emergence of generic products, expiring patents, over-the-counter products, and an increased focus on emerging markets to deliver competitiveness, pharma companies need to design and introduce new supply chain models that require new systems, processes, and metrics to be implemented. The definition of supply chain management has broadened over the years, and, in the data-centric world people live in today, supply chain decision makers have begun realising the importance of regulatory, market, and healthcare professional client data, in designing more competitive supply chain models.

Syringe siliconization

Gerresheimer AG

Ready-to-fill, i.e. sterile, prefillable glass syringes, are washed, siliconized, sterilized and packaged by the primary packaging manufacturer. They can then be filled by the pharmaceutical companies without any further processing. These days the majority of prefillable syringes are made of glass and the trend looks set to continue. The siliconization of the syringe barrel is an extremely important aspect of the production of sterile, prefillable glass syringes because the functional interaction of the glass barrel siliconization and the plunger stopper siliconization is crucial to the efficiency of the entire system. Both inadequate and excessive siliconization can cause problems in this connection. The use of modern technology can achieve an extremely uniform distribution of silicone oil in glass syringes with reduced quantities of silicone oil. Another option for minimizing the amount of free silicone oil in a syringe is the thermal fixation of the silicone oil on the glass surface in a process called baked-on siliconization. Plastic-based silicone oil-free or low-silicone oil prefillable syringe systems are a relatively new development. Silicone oil-free lubricant coatings for syringes are also currently in the development phase.
